Gift for the Star Wars Lover

Most of us have a friend or two who love Star Wars....for me I have so many that I can't even count them on both hands {including myself } lol

In our home we celebrate Christmas a little different than the mainstream.  We try and make most of our gifts handmade with the exception of books, some clothes, and other things that I have not figured out how to make yet ;)

My husband does many things throughout the year for me that are so sweet and awesome that when it comes to holidays we don't usually do much for each other because we focus on giving all year long to each other and not just on one day.  But that's a whole other story in itself. :)

If we do things for each other on a holiday,  its usually something handmade and fun and then we will all go out as a family and do something together.
Four our daughter, I would say 80% of her holiday gifts are handmade.   My husband and I have fun planning what we will make for her for the holidays in advance, its a fun bonding experience for us that usually ends up being filled with laughter and jokes......{smiling now from the memories this past fall in planning for Victoria.....good times}

So I was already going to take the composition notebooks that my husband uses every day at work and cover them in Yoda themed paper.  He is going to have the coolest comp. notebooks on the block! lol
But then I saw this post on Under the Sycamore and thought it would be a perfect thing to add in.
I love this blog and always find her posts to be so fun and full of raw emotion.  Her craft ideas are awesome and her style for decorating def. speaks to my heart....I wish I could clone a few things in her house and bring them to mine. lol

Check out her blog for photos of what these look like all done up.  She has some great adorable ones. :)

I printed the images onto card stock like Ashley advised so that they would hold up better with play.
I think this is going to be an awesome gift for my husband and my daughter too.  They will have a fun craft to do together and then can play with their new Star Wars guys and have a ball while I am making Christmas dinner.
I printed double of both so that they can have extras in case any break or get messed up in the construction process.  If all goes well, we will have two Yodas hanging out on Christmas Day. :)

Here are the direct links to these pages for download and printing  {they are free!!}

I am still on the look out for a Chewy......kinda vexed I can't find one yet. :/

Now I have to get moving on finishing up the comp notebooks .....we have been so busy with school, dance, and PT that I am a little behind.
But I have all the materials so that counts for something right? lol
